Alan Jackson and Toby Keith are taking their tours across the pond.

Jackson’s tour visited Sweden and Norway last week. Tickets to see the superstar and his band The Strayhorns were in high-demand for all three shows. The run kicked off in Stockholm, Sweden.

This isn’t the first international trek for the singer-songwriter this year – in March, Jackson toured Australia for the first time and all six shows sold out in minutes.

Jackson is currently climbing the charts with the new song, “Long Way to Go,” his debut single from EMI Records Nashville and ACR (Alan’s Country Records).

Toby Keith will take his tour overseas in late October, promoting the release of his new Show Dog- Universal album. His latest project, Clancy’s Tavern, will be available worldwide Oct. 25.

The lead single, “Made In America,” is fast rising, already landing at No. 2 on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout chart.

Keith is set for twelve concerts in Europe, kicking off Oct. 30 in Edinburgh. This isn’t his maiden voyage overseas, in 2009 he did a nine-date, six-city sold-out run.
